    Pros

    Great work life balance as they offer flexible hours and it is only a 35 hour work week. Plus, some jobs can be performed at home some days.

    Cons

    Most of the technical jobs go offshore.

    Bring back the jobs to the US

    Pros

    If you are a salesperson looking for crazy good commissions, you'll love it here.

    Cons

    If you do anything in the administrative or operations side, you'll need a second job to pay your bills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep good people, please recognize that sales does not happen without the help of support employees, and behave accordingly.

    Pros

    Excellent PTO policy after you've been there for over five years. Majority of the lower level employees are friendly and great people.

    Cons

    Many members of upper management looked at some employees as grunts and only cared about working with those that could help them with their next promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your lower level employees and customers.

    Pros

    The offer a good pay and good hours. Each week had free food, seminars, and amazing offers. I personally took advantage of their vacation offers that allowed me to visit my choice of their properties across the world

    Cons

    A little too informal. Computer systems obsolete - could really benefit from upgrading their computer programs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be better structured for your employees. Empower them to talk with you and help make the company better

    Pros

    Unlimited potential earnings. Your commission on sales can greatly increase if you have a great month because of bonuses.

    Cons

    It can be a hard sell and the people you're selling to initially don't want to buy. If you are not one of the top selling reps you will have a dramatically lower number of people that you will be able to sell to, aka less opportunities to make a sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "in-units" should not be tied to your VPG but should be counted as bonus

    Pros

    Like the hospitality brand, Wyndham is a beautiful campus that is always looking to improve. People are friendly; the campus offers services like dry cleaning, car wash, grocery pickup, etc. The work is as fun as it can be, the hours aren't miserable, and everyone is supportive of your work-home life balance.

    Cons

    With that, comes a salary below many other industries.The salary and bonus scale is unimpressive until you are at a Senior Vice President level. There is no stock option opportunity for employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay consistent with the brand-- the brand identity is the strongest thing Wyndham has to offer.
